"That's Ugly."

     Are you ever around negative and critical people? People like that go around spewing venom on unsuspecting victims. Before you know it, their critical spirit is like a virus – it affects the whole group. I want to challenge you to speak up the next time you hear the critic working their sad ways. I want to challenge you to use two very simple words: “That’s ugly.”

Be bold and courageous. Simply say, “That’s ugly.” You might think, “I don’t want to hurt their feelings.” Christians need to be salt and light. We need to speak the truth in love. You are not running them down to simply say “That’s ugly.” You are making them think twice before they do it the next time. At the end of the day, you won’t be able to change the critic. They have a lot of issues that leads to that type of behavior. However, you can stop the spread of the virus from going to the beautiful person sitting nearby. Try it this week. It’s just two words: “That’s ugly.”
